Undergraduate Research Assistant (USRA)
University of British Columbia, 2017, BSC, Integrated Sciences, Analytical Sports Management

I am entering third year at UBC and working with FEATHERS for Fall 2014.

My Integrated Sciences combines Data Mining, Statistics and Business into an analytic sports management degree. I am the associate editor for a top hockey website, DobberSports.com; I am the video coach of the UBC Thunderbirds and before CARIS I was pursuing a career in hockey.

Part of what I hope to be doing is mining the data that will soon be generated by optical tracking systems in the NHL, and I will be learning some of the computer vision and machine learning at FEATHERS. The fact that I can have an impact in something like FEATHERS that will genuinely help people is incredible to me. I didn’t think this was a possibility as an undergraduate student and I am now more than open to changing careers.
